strik striking to me was there was a disconnect between conservative activists in texas's feeling about rick perry and the rope that rick perry would be the standard bearer for the tea party. i mean, conservatives in texas have a lot of issues with rick perry. they hated that highway that he tried to build through the state, maded the gardacil decision. >> the hpv vaccine. >> i thought that was actually one of the things that was most devastated and effective bachmann's attack on that. but i think it helped sort of discredit this kind of -- in soft focus he seemed like the perfect right wing standard bearer. then as you zeemd in that seems less and less the case. that was the only niche that he had going for him, that he could occupy. >> the job creation thing which sort of got unwound if you looked closer at what kind of jobs he created. >> i don't think the republican primary voters care about this. >> about job creation? >> i don't think that's the thing that's driving them. i really don't. >> i think what really hurt him was the observation someone made that he makes george bu

have been unbelievable. for example, in texas they are not consistent in the kinds of photo ids that are acceptable. for a student in texas, even a state issued id is not as acceptable as a ballot for voting and a gun list is. it is transparent who they are trying to block and who they want to smooth the path for. >> just to be clear, what is the issue with a photo id? as you know, we have to produce a photo id at the airport. what's the big issue? >> the big issue is you have 11% of americans that don't have a photo id. for certain populations like african-americans and low income folks, they are even;hsjut liky to not have a photo id. 25% don't have a photo id and it's not necessary. just an obstacle in the path of getting someone to the polls. every state in the country has the technology in place. to compare the voter's signature with what they have on file. whether it's computerized or a copy of the signature they have. a photo id requirement is an obstacle to get to the polls. >> you know that herman cain's manager had been found guilty for his in voter suppression. i guess he
